A Guide to the SIAC Arbitration Rules - Second edition

February 05, 2018

Co-written by Dechert partner, Mark Mangan (with the assistance of Dechert's Singapore arbitration team), and published by Oxford University Press, the second edition of A Guide to the SIAC Arbitration Rules provides a comprehensive analysis of the inception, interpretation and application of the SIAC Rules, focusing on the 6th edition of the standard rules (effective from 1 August 2016) and the 1st edition of the SIAC Investment Arbitration Rules (in force since 1 January 2017). A comparative analysis is performed, highlighting connections and points of difference between the SIAC Rules and those of other institutions. Relevant legislation, regulations and case law for the conduct of arbitration and the enforcement of awards in Singapore are also identified and explained.

The book stands alone as a comprehensive exposition of SIAC arbitration, and is indispensable for in-house counsel, practitioners and academics involved in arbitration in Asia.

New to this edition:

  • Revised and updated to account for the SIAC Rules 2016
  • Additional chapter on the SIAC Investment Arbitration Rules (2017)
  • Additional coverage of the new rules on multiple contracts, consolidation, and joinder
  • Added discussion of early dismissal of claims and defences, as well as improvements to the existing emergency arbitrator and expedited procedures
